Migrating smf forum


#1

Howdy,
I have an established SMF forum and am planning on migrating it over to DH.

Can someone tell me how I would go about doing that? Does DH handle it, or are there steps that I need to do?
Thanks,
Sarah

Do you have phpMyAdmin available at your old server?

  1. Export your database at your old server, downloading to your PC (gzipped).

  2. Create a database for your SMF at DH.

  3. Import (upload) your database using phpMyAdmin here at DH.

Thanks, sXi. Will that keep all the existing settings, so the forum will just continue on as it was?

Well, I’ve searched and found a great resource for this. I’m one of those who needs the specific steps, so thought I’d share this with anyone else who needs to migrate an SMF forum.

This is very specific and includes screen shots. Wonderful!

Sorry for not getting back to you sooner.

Yes your forum will respond as if nothing has changed.

Excellent link for future reference for others btw :wink:
